Antimicrobial Textiles Market Size

Antimicrobial Textiles Market size was worth more than USD 14.5 billion in 2022 and is projected to witness over 6.5% CAGR from 2023-2032. Rising demand for antimicrobial sportswear and apparel is expected to complement the industry expansion.


Increasing public awareness regarding health and hygiene will complement the antimicrobial textiles industry dynamics. Antimicrobial fabrics ensure protection against diseases by invading pathogens at a cellular level. Based on the compounds used, these textiles can either prevent the spread of germs or kill them altogether. Some of the commonly used antimicrobial compounds used in textile production include chitosan, quaternary ammonium, and triclosan, among others. Increasing focus on fabric treatment processes with antimicrobial compounds should favor industry statistics.

Environmental and health concerns associated with antimicrobial agents could restrain industry growth. Rigorous environmental laws on antimicrobial fibers are a major challenge for textile manufacturers. Despite the potential barrier against microbes and pathogens, these textiles are loaded with antibacterial compounds, which pose a threat to the environment. When these fabrics are washed, they often release compounds such as triclosan. These compounds pollute water bodies and put the aquatic ecosystem at risk. They can also reduce soil quality and contaminate farming land if disposed of on land.
